This is the proceedings of the second ASCE specialty conference on Estuarine and Coastal Modeling devoted to the rapidly evolving field of marine environmental modeling. The primary focus is on the application of numerical models to bays, estuaries, sounds, embayments, lagoons, and coastal seas to solve engineering and environmental assessment problems. Within this focus the emphasis is on the comparison of model predictions to observations of circulation and pollutant transport dynamics in estuarine and coastal systems. These papers cover a wide spectrum from model formulation and development through application to facility siting and environmental management, always trying to illustrate practical applications to meet regulatory requirements or the calibration and validation of models. Model researchers, users, and evaluators will find that this proceedings provides them with the current state-of-the-art and practice in estuarine and coastal modeling.
